- From what I remember, Schuyler's script, though pretty smart, still made
many mistakes. So it will certainly not remove the need to crowdsource.
At least the control and correction process.

It would likely require further adaptation to the specificities of the
map collection.

Regarding the grid, the 250k US DMA maps over the Philippines were
surprisingly irregular, compared to Pakistan, for example. Probably to
fit the complexity of the islands.

This should be an interesting project.
